DOCG - 2017
San Marco, Montefalcione
Structured and full-bodied. Extended aging in glass has bestowed harmony and balance upon it. The fruity aromas evoke ripe apples and pears with a hint of apricot, while on the palate there is a subtle hint of caramel, softened by a pronounced and pleasant sapidity in the finish.
This elegant white wine is intense and complex in its aromas and sensations, encompassing all the unique characteristics of the production territory.
